I am overall feeling much more secure, calm, at peace and confident with myself and my interactions/relationships with people in my life. LisaMarie really works with you to individualize each session to work on what you need most.

“I truly loved the 9 to thrive program and working with LisaMarie.  I appreciated the space she was able to hold for me and her ability to cater our sessions to my needs. We did counseling, reiki, past life regression, nutrition and more. Not only did we discuss what was happening in my life currently, but she also created time for learning and expansion.  LisaMarie’s knowledge and experience in so many areas was extremely helpful in providing guidance for the things I’ve been working through mentally, physically and spiritually. As someone who is highly sensitive, it was life changing to have someone who related to me on a deep level and also could share from personal experience. I’m so grateful to this program for helping me heal even further, gain a new sense of confidence and a deeper understanding of self. I highly recommend this program if you’re ready to dive into the very best version of you. ” Erica F. June 2023

“LisaMarie, working with you through your 9 to Thrive! Program was one of the best things I could have done for myself. After much research and reading all of your testimonies I knew your program was different than the rest. What I didn’t know at the time was just how life changing it was going to be! You have helped me to change my life in ways I did not know I could, and I am very grateful to you and this program.  You saved me from going “under water”, and I have grown tremendously.  There is so much to say, but here are the highlights:  

1.      I feel so much better emotionally and mentally.

2.      I am less reactive, more responsive, and less confrontational.

3.      I feel more empowered, have better boundaries and I communicated more effectively.

4.      I have learned good nutrition, have lost weight, and have reduced medication.

5.      I am calmer and have a better sense of self-appreciation and love. (I wish I knew sooner how important self-care is and how to actually do it).

6.      I started a new job of which I would not have had the confidence to apply for before this program.

Also, I have already recommended you to a few people and will continue to do so knowing what a benefit it is to commit to the 9 to Thrive!

I am on a good path now, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart and my husband and children do as well!

With gratitude, “

Dana G.       April 2022 

“I am down 3 clothing sizes and close to being down 4 sizes! Never thought I would see this size again. Thank you LisaMarie for believing in me. Thank you for your love and support. You are the best.” B.P.Y. , September 2021

“When I signed up to work with LisaMarie, I came expecting to work on my physical health solely and thought it would be a neat and quick 2-3month process. However in the first couple of meetings with her, it was clear to me that my body’s health was tied to all aspects of my life – my happiness in my then job, my core relationships, my family, my financial health, my spiritual practices – and I signed up for her 9 month program. 

“Over this time, I made some difficult decisions in my life-  among many other things – I slowly staged a resignation from my job and targeted a new rare opportunity that was scary to embark on, I figured out what was good for my body –  a careful couple of months understanding which foods sat well in my body. 

“LisaMarie helped me to take a step back and  evaluate and nurture healthy relationships in my life. It’s been a wonderful journey with her and cannot recommend her highly enough. Thank you LisaMarie!” ~ M. Lokko, Ph.D,  July 2021 

“In the past I have had hard times with mental health dealing specifically with anxiety, depression, eating disorders, addiction, etc. At some point in my adolescence, I labeled myself by these things, and believed I was weird, wrong, ugly, insignificant and was someone who had to experience the cruel nature of life everyday constantly. I considered myself someone who could never escape feeling deflated, meaningless, and sad towards myself and everyone around me. I had an unhealthy relationship to chemical substances, and my behavior reflected these negative thoughts. I hurt a lot of people in the process of dealing with my reality. I had been in psychotherapy for 5 years before I met LisaMarie through a family connection in July 2020. 

“I connected with LisaMarie immediately, and recognized she was what I had been looking for. I She shared with me her holistic, natural, and spiritual approach to wellness. 

“Originally, I was attracted to her services because of the nutritional education component (I have lost 30 pounds since seeing her.) I began LIsaMarie’ s 9 to Thrive! Program, and the time began flying. I really took inventory of myself, my relationships with people and things in my life, and with my relationship with chemicals. We covered so much, spiritually, physically, emotionally, and I saw myself grow and transform for the better week by week. 

“I also began reiki treatments and past life regression therapy which helped me better understand the mechanics of trauma in the context of my own journey. LisaMarie helped me understand how the ego operates and how to begin a relationship with the Divine consciousness of the universe. I became fully immersed in bettering myself and before I knew it my college grades improved (A’s) and my relationships with my family grew stronger. 

“Later in this journey, I even adopted my first pet! LIsaMarie’ s love of animals is something we share in common and something I love dearly about her. 

“No combination of words could truly ever describe the dynamic ability LisaMarie holds as a healer and educator. She knows her truth and boldly seeks to empower others to find their inner light and nurture their “seeds”.

As I approach one year of meeting LisaMarie I can easily say that my journey is clearer, allowing me to work steadfastly to achieve my purpose. I feel grounded and empowered by my own energy and inner divinity. I am in love with my life, the way things are (even if its not “perfect”) and take things one moment at a time (because the love exists in the present!) My health and physicality have never been better. And this July I will have one year in recovery from alcohol. 

I would recommend LisaMarie/Inspiring Wellness Solutions to anyone. If you have grown away from conventional medical models and are looking to try something different, see LisaMarie. Her brilliance, intelligence and grace are rare, and she has a genuine desire to guide others using love, compassion, honesty, and some joyous humor. ”  ~ A. Taylor.  July 2021 

“You have been so good for me.  I know you are going to say I did the work, but compared to challenges I had before I worked with you, I worked through these challenges so much easier and I learned so much.” ~ K. D.  June 2021 

“Alex loved Reiki with you, and for the first time in over a month he has not felt better. Thank you for working your magic.” ~ Beth P.

“I cannot say enough good things about my Reiki experience with you. Freaking amazing!! So Grateful!! My shoulder is better; no pain, and I feel so good overall.” ~ Ellen S.

“Thank you LisaMarie for your compassion & the beaconing light you give us thru the campfires. Your camp is innovative and life altering.” You are a blessing and I’m  grateful to be a part of this innovative approach to mind, body, soul shift. The campfires, are like the markings on a camp trail, aligning us to which path will lead us and keep us on our intended journey.” ~ Jayne T. H.

“LisaMarie was instrumental in my spiritual journey. Her program and her expertise provided me with the tools and a concrete thought process, which allowed me to work through some obstacles in my life. Through her expertise and may programs offered, I have been able to tap into m purpose and ultimately feel more at peace in my life. I have also enjoyed her classes, that have provided self-growth, spiritual connection and have a holistic effect in my life. I have recommended LisaMarie to friends and business colleagues and will continue to do so. She has a very keen understanding and uniquely beneficial perspective.” ~ Lynne P. RN

“Your insights & advice over the last six months have been hugely important to me. I had hoped to deal with some food issues, but our sessions dealt with so much more than food. It/they went much deeper – into my soul. Thank you for the generous gifts of your time, experience and wisdom. You have helped me grow.” ~ Maureen C. , RN

“Thank you for everything you’ve done for me and my family and for being there for us. You’re an incredible human being and do so much for others.” ~ Janine C.

“I have known and worked with LisaMarie for three years. I began seeing her for Reiki treatments when I was battling illness and continued to become a regular client through her Holistic Healthy Living Program HHLP.  I know that LisaMarie’s Reiki treatments were crucial to my healing from physical illness, and continue to be a source of healing and relaxation. HHLP has enhances my life inexplicably, but I will attempt to describe it briefly here. I feel a great deal of peace has been brought into my life as I continue to overcome obstacle which have plagued me for some time- bad eating habits, self-doubt, and a lack of self-compassion. LisaMarie has a special way about her. She has assisted me with these challenges in a caring, yet steadfast way – holding me accountable while never making me feel criticized or overwhelmed. She employs a variety of modalities to achieve wellness efficiently and effectively. I highly recommend LisaMarie’s programs and services, nearly all of which I have experienced in the past three years.You will find yourself on a path to greater wellness and love than you could even imagine.” ~ Lauren D., attorney at law

“Because of you, I really have come light years from where I once was. I may stumble here and there, but I stumble with my eyes open and have the courage to speak my mind without the fear of making people mad. I feel more powerful now than ever because no matter what, I know I am enough on my own and I’ll be ok. That is a priceless gift and I couldn’t have done it without your guidance. Thank you so very much.” ~ Melissa K.

“I have had the pleasure and privilege of working with LisaMarie for a year and she is truly phenomenal. Her counsel has been instrumental in helping me navigate and process the loss of a child, difficult/unhealthy relationships, my health (anxiety/ocd), professional goals, and spiritual growth. The energy work through reiki has helped me grow not just spiritually, but has also provided so many therapeutic benefits. I am finally finding closure after losing my daughter nearly seven years ago, and I am a better mom to my son. The combination of reiki, counseling, and past life regression has helped to transform me into the best version of myself. I remain calm and focused during challenging situations – from toddler tantrums to high-pressure situations at work. I have a balance between being loving and open while maintaining healthy boundaries. And after much searching, I am finally in a happy, healthy relationship with a loving partner. 2019 has been quite the year – and I look forward to what 2020 has in store.  Thank you, LisaMarie!” ~ Lori B., PhD

“You saved our marriage!” ~ Michelle V.

“I am in Arizona in my second week of vacation as I write this note:

‘Let me tell you why this trip is a miracle, of sorts. Four years ago my quality of life was extremely poor. I was obese, ill and lethargic. Everyday was the same: I slept until 11 am or so, I played games on my phone, watched TV and went to doctor’s appointment; a lot of doctor appointments. I took extremely little care for myself or my home. My husband took on 98 percent of all responsibilities; laundry, food shopping, caring for our dogs, cleaning the house, dishes and driving me to all my appointments. My social life dwindled to almost nothing. I was uncomfortable in my own skin, unhealthy, lonely, and very unhealthy.

‘At a very low point, my massage therapist recommended I meet and work with LisaMarie of Inspiring Wellness Solutions, LLC. After my consult with LisaMarie, I started on a journey of wellness with her. I was not the most compliant person; not even close. As difficult as I was at times, though, LisaMarie never gave up on me. She has been a consistent source of knowledge, support, guidance and motivation for my well-being. She believed in me when I did not, and she continues to show me the way.

‘From where I was to where I am: not only do I drive myself around now, but I took my first flight in my entire life by myself and flew across the country. I help care for my home, my dogs and our property (moving from an apartment into our own home.) I am building new friendships, eat healthier, lost weight, reduced a few medicines, and have more self-confidence than I have had in years. There is so much more to say, but in short, I am living life again. I still meet with LisaMarie; she is never ending in kindness, spirituality, direction, support, knowledge and her care for me.

‘Thank you LisaMarie for all you have done and do, and Happy Holidays to you. I am enjoying my trip so much, and look forward to seeing you when I return.'” ~ Susan E. Baldwin                

“My lower back pain is all gone, and most of my upper back pain is gone. I cannot believe this. You are amazing.” ~ Barb G.   

“Barb arrived for her first Reiki treatment on Saturday with a Reiki client who recommended Barb try Reiki with LisaMarie to relieve Barb’s chronic back pain. Barb was in severe back pain when she arrived; so much so she was slumped over when she walked into our office.

“1/2 hour Reiki treatment.  Results: pain relieved and she was no longer slumped over. She was in disbelief.

“My client who referred Barb also suffers from severe chronic back pain. She had her first Reiki treatment approximately seven weeks ago. Has reported to me: ‘You have done so much for me; the pain dissipates, I stand straighter, I have more energy and feel better than I have in years.” ~ Holly M.

“I met LisaMarie at a wellness event and decided to give Reiki a try. In one phrase…..change for the better.

“LisaMarie and Reiki opened doors of opportunity in my personal growth. LisaMarie’s sessions are so calming and effective. I had been suffering from an unexplainable abdominal pain that was waking me up at night. Several days after one treatment, the pain had completely gone away.

“LisaMarie has an ability to locate areas that are in need of her positive energy without any instruction as to them.  Her spiritual guidance and calming voice lulls you into a complete relaxed state.

“LisaMarie is a wonderful healer and I always leave a session feeling refreshed, clearer, happier, and just plain healthier.” ~ Carolyn C.   

“Lisamarie and her unique combination of skill sets was exactly what I needed in my life.

“I went to Lisamarie because I needed someone who not only provided heartfelt, to the point counseling, but also understood soul connections and how they influence our life and decisions.

“I met Lisamarie during the lowest and most challenging part of my life. But, her unique knowledge and combination of spirituality and counseling not only helped me make my way out of this dark cloud, but also into my happiest and rewarding life.

“I not only recommend Lisamarie to my friends and family, but I have sent many of my own clients to her as well.

“I highly recommend her without reservation.” ~ Ashley S. 

“LisaMarie is one of the most Personable Caring Professionals that I’ve had the Honor to work with. Her ability to educate the Public on Health and Wellness concerns is unmatched in Her industry.” ~ J. Kriss    

“Wow, I have been in and out of therapy for years, but I have progressed more in these past two months than I have with all the therapy combined.” ~ C. Myers

“Hello LisaMarie, I took your advice and things are going really well. I had the best Thanksgiving I’ve had in years. Thanks for everything!” J. L.

“LisaMarie is a gifted Reiki Master and has the heart of an angel. I cannot express in words the gratitude I have for all the help she has given me in various areas of my life. She is wise, loving and has the gift of prophecy. She also helped with my bereavement process as one of her many gifts is channeling messages from deceased loved ones. You will not be disappointed, and you will be blessed to have time with this very talented and lovely woman.” ~ Karen Wallo      

“I sought LisaMarie at an incredibly low and confusing point in my life. Through her wisdom and healing spirit she was able to guide me as I navigated this troublesome period. Beyond that, and believe me this was no mean feat, she has taught me ways to cope with issues that will truly last a lifetime and possibly into other lifetimes. This mere testimonial cannot truly describe what it is that she does, you would have to experience that yourself. While my crisis has abated, thanks to her hard work and mine; make no mistake, Lisamarie is a teacher, empath and spiritual guidepost, you are ultimately responsible for your work toward healing. But with her touch and care, life will reveal itself as precious and joyful. am looking forward to her presence going forward as I see what this adventure brings.”     ~ Paul H.

“Best Wishes for Your Health and Happiness, Sybil” ~ Dr. Sybil A. MD    

“My entire life I have struggled with a poor self-image; disliking my body; feeling that life had a lot more to offer, but not knowing just quite how to get there. My journey with LisaMarie opened up so many new doors for me. I feel now that I am worthy, because I believe in myself. I feel fantastic! My energy level has soared, I am happy, smiling, and feel like others see this in me now tool I have lost (and continue to lose) weight. LIsaMarie created an environment that was loving and non-judgmental; offering support and guidance whenever needed- I couldn’t have done it alone. LisaMarie is a gift. I am a better person after having worked with her – I love my life; and it’s getting better every day! Thank you, LisaMarie, words alone cannot express my gratitude!” ~ Stephanie C.

“When I first decided to take control of my health I was honestly at a loss. I knew I needed to do something, but I had no idea where to start. I tried counting calories, because of course counting calories would make me healthy. Needless to say, I did not get healthier. I was even more unhappy and even gained weight.

“I don’t remember how I found LisaMarie; I think it started with a Google search. I am SO glad I made the call and set up my consultation. Over the course of the next few months, I was completely transformed inside and out. I really felt as though LisaMarie was personally invested in me; she was so supportive and encouraging. I am off almost all of my medications and supplements, I am down 15 pounds, and best of all I am truly happy and healthy.

“I think of the most important things I learned, and what is missing from “dieting”, is to LOVE food. The key is to love the right foods. I do not count calories and very rarely weigh myself. I eat when I’m hungry and I eat good, whole food.

“I have experienced countless benefits: weight loss, increase in energy, significantly decreased health issues, and reduction in daily medications. I am wearing more colorful clothing (I used to wear predominantly black), getting out of bed excited to see what the day brings, and am more honest with others and myself. But the most valuable thing I learned is to love and respect myself and my body. I have never before felt so confident and full of life. When you treat yourself with love and respect and nourish your body, it is truly amazing the person you can become.” ~ Stephanie Kogler

“In June 2011, I was diagnosed with medullary thyroid cancer, a rare form of cancer; stage IV. The diagnosis followed two years of diarrhea and numerous medical examinations and tests.

“At the time of diagnosis I was put on a treatment plan of surgery, radiation and chemotherapy. I had a thyroidectomy, right neck dissection, thoracic surgery and extensive radiation to the neck and chest. This treatment plan resulted in me suffering from medium grade chronic pain, sleeplessness, low appetite, weight loss, low energy and a low concentration level.

“In accordance with the advice from my medical team, I reached out to a hospital nutritionist in early 2014. Upon following her nutrition advice, I became ill with diarrhea, dehydration, weight loss and my calcitonin levels skyrocketed to 1200 points!

“In March 2014, my wife and I reached out to LisaMarie Tersigni at Inspiring Wellness Solutions, LLC. After a consult with LisaMarie we decided to work with her to see if I could stop losing weight, rebuild my immune system and receive a better quality of life.

“She customized a program for me and within the first week I was already feeling better. My moods were elevated, I had more energy than I had in a long time and I was able to go out of the house for extended periods; up to 6 hours one day without crashing. The overall benefits I received from working with LisaMarie are:

  1. more stamina
  2. able to take more trips out of the house
  3. weight stable
  4. no diarrhea since starting the program
  5. actually ate a second helping at dinner: that was a first in a long tme
  6. sit outside for fresh air a little more
  7. more energetic and more steady
  8. elevated mood
  9. Cat Scan and MRI show no new growth of tumors
  10. My calcitonin levels are close to flat at 75 points    *That is amazing!**

“In short, I feel better than I have in a very long time. LisaMarie is very knowledgeable, caring, supportive and will do all she can to help you be healthy and live the best quality of life possible. My wife and I are glad we reached out to her, and we believe you will be too.” ~ Sincerely, Brian Maloney

“In 2014 I met LisaMarie where she was the main speaker of a wellness/vegetarian seminar in Connecticut. I mentioned to her, I was taking fish oil for the Omega 3 benefits and heard it would improve my vision. LisaMarie suggested including flax seed into my diet. After following her recommendation for six months I noticed my vision improving. I went for my annual eye check up to verify my belief. My optometrist verified my vision improvements and said that using glasses are now optional. This was important since I commute four hours daily. This week had my annual with even more improvement. My vision is 20/25 and 20/30 at age 58.  Thanks Lisa-Marie!” ~ Mark Floryan   

“LisaMarie is a fantastic wellness and life coach. She is the total package. She takes in to consideration each individual clients’ lifestyle, goals and needs.

“She helped me to change my life in ways I didn’t even expect. She not only helped me to address my weight and health concerns, she helped me to become a happier person.” ~ Megan D.   

“You changed my life. Thank you. LisaMarie changed my life. I thought I would have to stay unhealthy and unmotivated for the rest of my life. I could not fathom taking more time to take care of myself when I was barely getting by taking care of my family. In meeting with LisaMarie, I discovered that taking care of myself actually makes the time I spend with my family better. I learned to cook (hug difference as previously I never sautéed anything), I learned to be brave and go to exercise classes and realized how much I enjoy moving and exerting myself when it is fun like a dance class or weight class. I dislike the gym, but I like the community of classes. LisaMarie helped me to discover how to make this all work. I dropped 3 pant sizes and often get compliments from co-workers about how much weight I have lost. My husband told me he can tell I am smaller because he can hug me and his hands meet. I am on a good path because I have gotten to the root of why I previously avoided taking care of myself. Thank you LisaMarie.” ~ Dr. Amy W. PhD

“I have a deep respect and belief in what LisaMarie teaches and promotes in everything related to health and wellness.  I will admit I was a bit skeptical in how much of an impact I thought an aromatherapy session might have on helping me to relax and heal. I had a very rotated and painful lower back and before I had the opportunity to get a chiropractic treatment, I sought an aromatherapy session from LisaMarie.

“In addition to using pure essential oils, she incorporated Reiki in my treatment.  My tight lower back muscles began to slowly relax, and by the time my session was complete I felt glorious relief, my muscles had finally released and my range of motion was almost back to normal.  (I went on to run 8 miles after my session.)

“LisaMarie concluded my treatment with intuit messages that elevated my session from merely clinical to profoundly personal; resonating from deep within.

“I would urge anyone seeking pain cessation, relaxation, a spiritual journey, and/or health and well-being to meet with LisaMarie.  She transcends conventional trampled “medicines” and treats from a platform of love and kindness.” ~ Stephanie Capone

“LisaMarie, please know the knowledge you have given all of us has been incredibly life changing! My daughter is eating much better and my son is making subtle changes–I have lost some weight, and for that I am thankful to you and all you know in your field. You have been so accommodating, and knowledgeable I can’t begin to tell you what a gift you are to your field of work!” ~ Tracy F.
